Which MBTI type is the most scientific?

Scientific: “The observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.”

The answer for this question is highly controversial. Many people seem to think that the ISTJ is the most scientific type. They think that because a typical ISTJ likes to follow structure and order, putting in place fact rather than theory, they would of course show scientific traits. However, an INTJ is scientific to an extent far beyond this.

The first thing to cover is the introversion. Introverts are generally much less talkative people. They like to think in their head about matters of daily life, allowing more availability to think about things such as science. Of course, extroversion can sometimes help with expressing these ideas, but an introvert can rise to this challenge if they’re confident and proud.

The second one is the most controversial aspect. Should an intuitive person be considered more scientific than that of a traditionalist? Well the answer to me is fairly obvious, and I’ll illustrate it to you with comparison. Let’s start off with the ‘S.’ A sensor is likely to know scientific principles. They know of all the scientific methods, all the scientific history, all of the facts and logic behind the subject. Of course, anyone who wants a doctor should consult this type of person. However a true scientist goes far beyond that. They advance society. They explore our world. They discover new things. And that’s what science is truly about. Discovery. That one word sums it up.

The third thing to consider is the letters ‘T’ and ‘F.’ The key emphasis here is the different values the two have between each other. Feelers, whether they realise it or not, often  place much more importance in terms of human relationships. They emphasise the way they conduct themselves with others, rather than on logic, a key role of the T. Thinkers often consider things based on their thoughts, not their emotions. For this reason, it is obvious that the third letter in the sequence is a T.

Finally, the letter J vs. the letter P. It is common knowledge that judgers have better routine and are more organised than the P. This obviously means that they’ll be more efficient in their scientific pursuits, meaning J definitely gets slotted in for last place. On the other hand, perceivers like to live in the moment, on edge, in everything they do.

So if you ever see a guy in a lab coat walking past, remember to call him an introverted, intuitive, thinking, judger of a person!

    True… INTJs, due to their organization are probably the best scientific researchers, by far. they are also the type with the highest IQs on average.

    However, quite a few of the most ground breaking theories have been proposed by INTPS.
    For example, it’s commonly accepted that Einstein and Darwin were both INTPs. I think being a P allows a person to see things in a completely new way, something Js can’t do as well and something that is needed to come up with a brilliant new theory.

    This is so accurate. There’s a guy in my class who got 100% on four science tests in a role and actually got to meet Professor Suzanne Cory. Later found out that he’s INTJ. He acts more like an ENTJ though.
